hmm "throw sum mo" isn't quite the world-stopping masterpiece i expected of these three acts tho

lex pretend, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 17:52 (two years ago) Permalink

legit didn't know two-9 was a collective

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 18:48 (two years ago) Permalink

i was expecting better from "throw sum mo" but still kinda anticipating this

dyl, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 20:27 (two years ago) Permalink

it's a perfectly acceptable album cut. So far everything these guys have released has grown on me like crazy so I wouldn't put it past any of these tracks to do the same.

Thanks for starting this thread Lex!

Evan R, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 20:47 (two years ago) Permalink

i love the beat on it, time will tell on the song itself

this was still supposed to be an EP like a few weeks ago, pretty cool that the success of the singles got it bumped up to a full-length album

some dude, Tuesday, 9 December 2014 21:10 (two years ago) Permalink

Throw Sum is excellent imo. Up there with the other two.

longneck, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 08:13 (two years ago) Permalink

it's alright but i really wanted everyone involved to just wild out as we know they can, not anything this understated

lex pretend, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 11:11 (two years ago) Permalink

I was definitely ready for an understated Nicki at this point in time. I also like the concept of an understated strip club jam.

longneck, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 11:48 (two years ago) Permalink

well "pour it up" is over a year old now

lex pretend, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 12:06 (two years ago) Permalink

And from than on only overstated strip club jams are allowed? I like the way the boys' overexcitement in the verses is punctured every time by Nicki's disinterested voice + the giggly "nothing really matters anyway" quality of the beat.

*then

longneck, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 15:06 (two years ago) Permalink

aren't 90% of strip club jams all sad submarine synths feel-my-pain emo nonsense anyway these days?

my disappointment was more that if you've got rae sremmurd AND nicki AND young thug on the same track you should be playing to their collective wilding-out strengths

lex pretend, Wednesday, 10 December 2014 16:00 (two years ago) Permalink

But this isn't a sad submarine synth feel my pain emo joint. It's a celebration of the absurdity of it all. And it's great.

I mean don't get me wrong, I'm all for underground musical acts having stupid names, but when you start to get mainstream exposure & radio airplay & shit you have to stop and think "actually, how are people not on the internet supposed to talk about this music"

I can just, like, YOLO with Uber (bernard snowy), Thursday, 18 December 2014 17:44 (two years ago) Permalink

i heard a radio DJ or two struggle with their name when they first started getting airplay a few months ago, now they all have pretty much gotten the hang of it. it's really not that hard to pronounce or spell.

It's fun to say imo

Number None, Thursday, 18 December 2014 18:18 (two years ago) Permalink

"throw sum mo" is ok ... the beat feels a bit too soon after "only" to me

also i'm not sure who decided nicki should be on a hook w/ no verse and young thug should rap a verse w/ no hook but i don't think it worked out -- nick sounds extremely bored

Every time I've heard a radio dj say their name (which is twice) they have made a point of explaining that it is ear drummers backward

Which it isn't, it's drummers ear backward

i always thought it was "drummers ear,"like swimmers ear or something

I esteem the word sremmurd, it is truly beautiful, but I prefer it without the 'sh' sound which also turns the drummers ear thing into sean connery

it has steadily risen up the charts over the period of a couple months like pretty much any hit but you should ask mike will why he didn't release it as a single until late september

amazed but so thrilled it's doing so well

would love for it to make the full pop crossover but not holding my breath

dyl, Monday, 7 November 2016 18:43 (eleven months ago) Permalink

It sold almost twice as much digitally as any other song did today so I'd say a top 10 placement is pretty much inevitable at this point.

five months pass...

so is "Swang" sampling something or just really reminiscent of a slow idm track?! it drives me nuts and I think it just sounds like something

mh, Wednesday, 10 May 2017 02:07 (five months ago) Permalink

I'm almost certain "By Chance" samples "Gammi" by Disjecta for the beat.

attention vampire (MatthewK), Wednesday, 10 May 2017 02:28 (five months ago) Permalink

I am all for doing some research as a group, here. We can crack this producers into 90s idm sampling or jacking beats connection

mh, Wednesday, 10 May 2017 02:39 (five months ago) Permalink

I also suspect part of Kendrick's "HUMBLE." beat is lifted from the end of Autechre's "Augmatic Disport". Which would please them massively since they are hip-hop to the core.

attention vampire (MatthewK), Wednesday, 10 May 2017 03:57 (five months ago) Permalink

'Swang' does sound a bit like Boards of Canada or Plaid or something. I wonder what that bubbly synth sounds like backwards?
